What is the usual closing time in Crete?

I would say like much of Greece in general it depends, if you are in a bigger city or a smaller village/town.

In a city or larger town they might close at 2AM or later. I have eaten a full meal (amazing, but waaaay tooo late!) at 3 AM after a night out at the bouzoukia (Greek music concert).

I would say either call ahead or ask during the day what time places close in your area to be sure.

Hope this helps and thanks for stopping by!! 🇬🇷 🇬🇷 🇬🇷

I don't think people really worry about defining closing time. They close when everyone is gone or they're done for the day. I know that this doesn't help much, but it kind of should help. Most of Greece is like this, and other European countries, as well.

I swear Greece is one of the only places where visiting monasteries is like a must do! Toplou monastery is so stunning and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to see some less touristy sites in Greece!
